The City of McAllen participates in the US Department of Justice (DOJ) FBI Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) System, a nationwide statistical data reporting effort. 

The DOJ FBI Summary Reporting System (SRS), commonly known as the Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR), is transitioning to the National Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS) beginning January 1, 2021.   

Additionally, the Texas Legislature passed legislation that requires this reporting change.

HB 11, Texas 84th Regular Session, effective 09/01/2015, in part, provides that:   

Sec. 411.054.  INCIDENT-BASED CRIME STATISTICS REPORTING GOAL.  (a)  The department shall establish a goal that, not later than September 1, 2019, all local law enforcement agencies: 

(1)  will have implemented an incident-based reporting system that meets the reporting requirements of the National Incident-Based Reporting System of the Uniform Crime Reporting Program of the Federal Bureau of Investigation; and 

(2)  will use the system described by Subdivision (1) to submit to the department information and statistics concerning criminal offenses committed in the jurisdiction of the local law enforcement agency.

Pursuant to such directives, the McAllen Police Department has completed its transition from the UCR format to the NIBRS format. 

Reporting under the former UCR format reflects occurrences of eight (8) crime categories (including Arson) called Part 1 Crimes.     

Reporting under the current NIBRS format reflects 24 offense categories made up of 52 reportable Group A offenses and 10 Group B offenses.   

This year’s report represents our third (3rd) crime report in the NIBRS format, includes previous year data and previous year NIBRS data comparison.  

We anticipate releasing our 2023 McAllen National Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS) Crime report on Friday, January 19, 2024.  Generally, the report will reflect the following NIBRS offense information:
